Sometime yesterday, our little corner of the Internet reached a milestone...
When I started our blog a few years ago, this counter was ZERO.
I still remember when the little counter flipped over to 1 and 2 for the first time. I told 2nd Man "LOOK! Someone visited the blog!".
Then there were 100 and 1,000 and 10,000 and 100,000. No way we could ever do much better than that, or so we thought.
Then it was 1,000,000...
And then 2,000,000...
Just last February, we reached 3,000,000!
And now, not quite 8 months later, we have added another million! That means we are currently averaging 125,000 page views per month.
You cannot even begin to understand what it means to us. We get a lot of comments from you, some post them here, some email directly to us and of course, many visitors just come, stay a bit, read, and leave. But you all keep coming back.
We started this blog as a way to keep track of what we were doing at the farm, starting from scratch. Thought it might be fun to share with friends and whoever else might want to come along for the ride. Yet, here we are, four years later, well on our way toward getting to the farm full time. Along the way, we've shared laughs, we've made friends (so many of you have touched us with personal emails and even surprise gifts that mean SO very much to us), we've shared dreams and hopes, failures and plan changes, even the loss of my Grandfather and our beloved cat Sydney. We've changed jobs, bought more land, built buildings and fences, cleared new areas and raised vegetables and started beekeeping...and now we're about to move to an apartment downtown, the last step on our journey to the country!
It's been a great ride with so much more to come, we hope you'll hop into the passenger seat (it's a BIG car, LOL!) and stick around for the rest of the journey.
We do believe it will be time for a giveaway soon in honor of this milestone! Stay tuned!
